A tribute to a Super Hero!

Friday, September 24, 2010

My husband and I received very shocking news last night. A boy from our sons baseball team passed away suddenly from an unknown illness.

Cade passed away on Tuesday, September 21 at 12:11 pm after coming down with a unknown virus on Labor day. He was survived by his parents, 2 older brothers, older sister, and many family and friends.

Cade was taken away from life too soon at only age 9. He had so much life to live..... He was about to turn 10 on Oct. 17.

We had the chance to meet Cade through baseball. Cade was on Andrew's team a few years back and then again this summer. The boys really bonded as a team and played well together. My husband also had a chance to get to know Cade through coaching.

Hearing of his death and not knowing why has been such a shock to the system. Our boys are also grieving from a loss of a fellow teammate. Just makes you think more about how precious life really is. Never take life for granted..... because you never know when you will be called. Take each day as a gift!

Cade had his calling on Tuesday..... and he flew off with his super powers!
Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers.

    It is sad to learn that Andrew's friend and teammate has died. I can see how this would be very shocking. I will keep your family and Cade's family in my prayers. I'll be giving Jane extra hugs tonight.

    Please know that Cade's parents, siblings and all his other family, friends and loved ones are in our thoughts and prayers. For whatever reason, God decided he needed another Angel and chose Cade; no one will ever know why. I truly am of the belief that so long as a loved one continues to live on in our hearts, minds and memories, that they are never truly dead or far from us. I can't begin to know the pain and suffering his family must be feeling, but I do know that I'll be snuggling my munchkins a little bit more...
